These easy whole food, vegan mushroom bacon bits are great as a bacon substitute in everything from hot slaw to salads. I absolutely love how versatile and delicious (and simple!) this substitute is!

2 tablespoons soy sauce
naturally-smoked hickory salt, to taste
1/4 onion, diced (optional)
Marinate mushrooms in spices, soy sauce, molasses/syrup and oil.
